Solutions For Contractors

Contractor Assistance

The same thoughtful and thorough approach that we bring to our design projects, Dunbar brings to contractors seeking special engineering services to fill any gaps between design and construction.

Our team has a deep understanding of constructability, as well as your need for timeliness, ease and careful stewardship of resources. One of our strengths is the ability to seamlessly become part of a larger project team, helping you deliver excellence without excess.

Structural Steel Connection Design

For projects in which Dunbar is not the Structural Engineer of Record and the fabricator is responsible for the design of the steel connections, we provide steel connection design services to steel fabricators.

Engineering Assistance Services

Services include:

  • Temporary bracing and shoring of structures to provide stability
  • Stabilization of adjacent properties
  • Sequencing of demolition and erection
  • Analysis of floor and roof structures to determine structural adequacy for construction equipment
  • Crane operation support during erection or relocation of structures
  • Design of stairs, railings and other metal fabrications
  • Design of cold-formed steel framing systems
  • Design of slotted channel framing systems

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Dunbar on numerous design-build projects these past 25 years. I have always appreciated Jeff’s friendship and his ability to meet the challenges of design while being mindful of the budget and schedule. During construction, when conflicts of any discipline have surfaced, the Dunbar team has always resolved the issue quickly, efficiently and logically to ensure the project budget and schedule is not adversely impacted. Dunbar is a great team to work with on any project, large or small.
